"For anyone who has ever suspected something sinister lurking behind the craze of new-age spirituality, Jessica Grose has crafted just the tale for you. With the delicious bite of satire and the page-turning satisfaction of a thriller, Soulmates is a deeply compelling, funny and sharply observed look at just how far we will go to achieve inner peace."Lena Dunham

A clever, timely novel about a marriage, and infidelity, the meaning of true spirituality, perception and reality from the author of Sad Desk Salad, in which a scorned ex-wife tries to puzzle out the pieces of her husbands mysterious death at a yoga retreat and their life together.

Its been two years since the divorce, and Dana has moved on. Shes killing it at her law firm, shes never looked better, thanks to all those healthy meals she cooks, and shes thrown away Ethans ratty old plaid recliner. She hardly thinks about her husbandex-husbandanymore, or about how the man shed known since college ran away to the Southwest with a yoga instructor, spouting spiritual claptrap that Dana still cant comprehend.

But when she sees Ethans picture splashed across the front page of the New York Post"Nama-Slay: Yoga Couple Found Dead in New Mexico Cave"Dana discovers she hasnt fully let go of Ethan or the past. The article implies that it was a murder-suicide, and Ethans to blame. How could the man she once loved so deeply be a killer? Restless to find answers that might help her finally to let go, Dana begins to dig into the mystery surrounding Ethans death. Sifting through the clues of his life, Dana finds herself back in the last years of their marriage . . . and discovers that their relationshiplike Ethans deathwasnt what it appeared to be.

A novel of marriage, meditation, and all the spaces in between, Soulmates is a page-turning mystery, a delicious satire of our feel-good spiritual culture, and a nuanced look at contemporary relationships by one of the sharpest writers working today.
